* ConsummationCounterfeit: A lot of people still carry [[DiscreditedTrope certain misconceptions]] that the hymen ''always'' breaks, the first time a woman has sex,(It's usually worn away naturally before someone would start having sex) and that her first time is always a bloody event. And there ''are'' still places and cultures in the world where because of tradition, a new bride's family members or husband might look for the alleged "proof" that she was a virgin, which may require a bit of trickery on her part whether she's a virgin or not. And it certainly makes sense to use the trope in a period piece.

* BondGunBarrel: Parodied so many times that it became a [[StockParodies stock parody]], but still being played straight by the ''Film/JamesBond'' franchise, either on movies or video games, because [[GrandfatherClause people have come to expect it and]] [[WatchItForTheMeme would complain if it weren't included]].

* CheatCode: Thanks to [[DownloadableContent DLC]], [[AchievementSystem achievements]], and online multiplayer, cheat codes are effectively dead for consoles. However, for the desktop computer market, its common practice to leave the developer's console accessible, in the interest of facilitating mod testing and provisional bug workarounds. Some [[VideoGameLongRunners long-running franchises]] that are known for their cheat codes, such as ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'', also still use cheat codes for gamers to enjoy the heck out of them (although they will block achievements when used).

* CourtlyLove: Undead for about five hundred years now. Famous {{subver|tedTrope}}sions appear as far back as ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' and ''Literature/TheCanterburyTales''.

* ScoringPoints: Recent games removed points entirely, or goes as far as to even ''mock'' the trope. Yet even today, many casual games and shmups still play it straight (mainly as a sop to hardcore players so they can compare scores).

Non-redemption arcade games also still focus on scoring points to this day, with the exception of fighting games, as it's an easy way of showing off your superior skill (or luck).

Added DiffLines:

* DumbAndDrummer: It's certainly true that there are some very intelligent drummers out there, and certainly there was never just the stupid rock 'n' roll drummer. But there's a reason jokes about this trope are still funny here and now; even if we all know the stereotype, there will always be a drummer - or [[SturgeonsLaw 9 out of every 10]] - who fits some aspect of this trope to a T.

* AnimatedMusical: Animation and music have always been closely related since UsefulNotes/TheSilentAgeOfAnimation, with both mediums relying on timing and thus perfect compliments to each other. Because of this, it remains a NecessaryWeasel in [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney films]] and other family-oriented animation even as it's mocked elsewhere.

* BigNo: The parodies of this have been around for quite a while, even so it is still being played straight

* OutOfContextEavesdropping: Played straight most of the time, but ripe for {{Lampshading}} or [[SubvertedTrope subversion]].

* PaperThinDisguise: While this was once mostly played straight in UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation because of RuleOfFunny, newer works seem to be split between {{subvert|edTrope}}ing it and playing it straight.



* PoorMansPorn: Due to [[ValuesDissonance the British (and other) government's]] attempt at "opt-in" filters, this trope will be played straight until governments realizes that [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped not everything pornographic is bad.]]

* PowerOfFriendship and PowerOfLove: Old and cliched? Yes. Does that stop people from using them today? Definitely no. Not only that, but both of them are still two good morals to teach to people (as long as you're not anvilicious about them).
